When I attempt to log in to things like Gmail, or any other site that requires me to enter a user name and password where I haven't opted to be signed in automatically, Firefox immediately crashes. I can restore the tabs, but only to get back to the sign in screen. This has made it impossible for me to check my email from my own computer.

Several odd things happened. First my color tabs switched on their own from below the toolbar to on top. Then, the exit icon on the upper far right disappeared. Also, although I could exit multiple sites that were open, the last one open would lose its exit icon. Now, the bar underneath the whole page is gone and I can't switch to other programs like Word or Microsoft Outlook and there's no icon for exiting the entire program.

Why can't I scroll (cursor up/down, page up/down home/end) or copy (ctrl-c) with the keyboard anymore?

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and I use the keyboard a lot to scroll and copy from the browser. Neither of these things are working. Hitting the keys that usually control scroll does nothing and hitting ctrl-c whilst text is selected has no effect. I can enter text into form fields (obviously :) ) but I can't tab between them.

I have googled this and keep coming up with it being an issue with caret browsing being enabled. Toggling caret browsing does not help me.

Whenever this starts occuring, the status bar will also start flickering between showing link's target href value and nothing, and tooltips (that would normally pop up on hover) appear briefly then disappear. The same thing happens with Javascript dropdown menus, which make it nearly impossible then to navigate a Java-based site.

I run Firefox on one desktop replacement laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400), one netbook (Asus Eee 1000), and one PC (the one I'm making this report from) and all of them have the same problem, even when I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of FF, and even when using different combinations of extensions.

Identical prblem reported here, but with Ubuntu:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/87043

but no solution. I'm completely stumped, and increasingly annoyed.
